What is on the MCAT?

The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is a standardized multiple-choice graduate entrance exam used across the United States and Canada for admission to a medical college or university.  The MCAT measures a students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills, as well as their knowledge of certain scientific concepts.  Students are required to take and perform well on the MCAT in order to apply for admission into any medical school; however, other factors, such as academic records, are also examined prior to a student’s potential admission.

The MCAT is divided up in four sections:

  • Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Sciences (59 multiple-choice questions)
  • Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills (53 multipe-choice questions)
  • Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems (59 multiple-choice questions)
  • Psychological, Social, and Biological Functions of Behavior (59 multiple-choice questions)

All of these sections, except for Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills, are based on 10 foundational concepts, or “big ideas” in the sciences and include material from Biochemistry, Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Psychology, Physics, and Sociology.  The Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section requires students to analyze and understand certain passages that does not require using scientific knowledge.

The first section of the MCAT is the Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Sciences, in which students need to complete 59 multiple-choice questions in 95 minutes. This section will be in the form of 10 passage-based question sets in which there will be 4-6 multiple-choice questions per set, and 15 independent questions.  Students will need to use their knowledge in Biochemistry, Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Physics in order to answer these questions correctly.

The second section on the MCAT is the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills, in which students need to complete 53 questions in 90 minutes.  This part of the exam will consist of 9 word passages, each having 500-600 words.  There are 5-7 multiple-choice questions attached to each passage, in which students will use their knowledge of humanities and social sciences, as well as their critical thinking and reasoning skills, to analyze, interpret and dissect the information.  These passages are sometimes presented in a convoluted or biased manner, which forces students to use their critical thinking and reasoning skills to scrutinize the multiple perspectives of the passage.

The third section on the MCAT is the Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems, in which students need to complete 59 questions in 95 minutes.  As in the first section, this section is divided in 10 passage-based question sets where there are 4-6 multiple-choice questions per set, as well as 15 independent questions.  Students need to use their knowledge of Biochemistry, Biology, General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry in order to answer questions that pertain to organizations and processes of living organisms.

In 2018, roughly only 13.4% of all students who participated in the MCAT performed in the 90th percentile or better.

The fourth section on the MCAT is the Psychology, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior, in which students need to complete 59 questions in 95 minutes.  As in the first and third sections of the MCAT, this section is also formatted in 10 passage-based question sets, in which there are 4-6 multiple-choice question per set, and 15 individual questions.  For this section, students need to use their proficient knowledge of Biology, Psychology, and Sociology to answer questions correctly pertaining to behavior and its changes, social and cultural differences, and sociocultural determinants of health.

Students will be graded on their correct answers, as there is no penalty for guessing on the MCAT.  Students will be given separate scale scores on each of the four different MCAT sections.  This scale score ranges from 118 to 132 for each individual section.  A student’s overall score is the sum of the 4 individual scale scores, giving an overall total of anywhere between 472 and 528.  Percentiles are released and updated yearly on May 1st, giving student’s an idea of how well they performed when compared to other test takers in that year.

Who benefits from MCAT tutoring?

 

Preparing for the MCAT can be an arduous and challenging task for many students, especially when attempting to prepare for this monumental entrance exam on their own.  Students may feel dispirited if they encounter certain academic obstacles in the process, which will undoubtedly influence their determination and willingness to study for the MCAT.  These students will greatly benefit from the mentorship and guidance of a professional MCAT tutor from The Glaser Tutoring Company.

A skilled MCAT tutor will provide the necessary direction that students need when preparing for this exam, simultaneously providing an individualized study plan which gives students the assurance that they will be

properly prepared to take the MCAT.  Students will feel relieved to know that, in addition to a proper learning plan, an in-home or online personal MCAT tutor will constantly adapt and cater their teaching methods to strictly connect with the students’ unique learning style.

A skilled MCAT tutor will also be able to instruct students with the necessary test-taking techniques to successfully take the MCAT.  Since a calculator is not allowed on the MCAT, students need to use mental math techniques to ‘guesstimate’ answers.  A knowledgable MCAT tutor will be able to instill these techniques effectively, and provide students with the proper skills to answer these questions correctly.

Learning principles that we stand by

Each student has a unique learning style

We understand that everyone learns differently.  That's why we tailor our lessons to meet the specific needs of each individual student.

Learn how to think, not what to think

During their academic career, students may fall into the habit of memorizing facts as their primary method of learning.  However, this does not allow students to think for themselves.  Instead, we constantly challenge our students in a way that requires them to think and formulate their own decisions, leading to intellectual growth.

Nothing great is achieved without commitment

Mastery does not happen overnight.  It requires hard work, perseverance, and a commitment to lifelong learning.  We help our students maintain their commitment throughout their academic journey.

Grades are the result, not the goal

We focus on something more important than just getting a certain grade on a transcript or report card.  Our goal is to provide our students with an interdisciplinary understanding that will help them perform better both in and out of the classroom.
